I guess this could apply to tractors, but not my point...

I have my faithful 01 Cherokee Sport 4.0. Its been my daily driver/work vehicle since 31k miles. Now has 294k on it. It sees about 35k miles a year in driving.
Anyways, wrist pin been knocking for over 100k miles. Finally got real bad couple months ago and I parked it - still runs, no "window" into the block.

So... rebuilding is not an option for me due to work and schedules. Just don't have that type of time these days and way too many other projects need weather dependent attention. Getting ready to get an 01 Cherokee Sport 4.0 engine from salvage with 88k miles on it. (I can swap quicker than rebuild).

My question - what items should I look into replacing/reworking on that used engine before I set it in there? My short list:

Water pump (replaced that on current engine)
Oil filter gasket (replaced that on current engine)
Oil pump
Possibly rear main seal? (current engine leaks)
Obviously anything that looks questionable or shows signs of leaks

I'm looking for input on items that tend to go or need work. I have rarely ever had issue with much on mine.

I'm planning to pressure wash/clean the engine compartment and engine, new belt, hoses, motor mounts, etc. I plan to get any new parts from NAPA or other recommendations on good quality parts - don't like to do it twice. Been there enough times on tractors with aftermarket/bad tolerance items.

Thanks for your patience in this long post. I also found a Jeep forum to post this, but knew you all would be helpful.
